This is one of my favorite tattoos done at the Dortmund convention and it was on a really cool tattoo artist from outside Cologne. I wanted to do the skull with a more flat shading than I usually do and I’m pretty happy with the result because it goes with the Japanese look of the flowers better. He has some pretty nice Bernie Luther tattoos and we swapped some good stories about him. If you never heard of Bernie Luther, you should check out his work…he can freehand anything!!!
I did this tattoo on my friend Martin and he asked me to do a Virgin Mary but in an “asian style” so i wanted to do a Kannon and Virgin Mary hybrid. We didn’t get to finish the tattoo but he’s going to be visiting Miami later on this summer…..I can’t wait to finish this one!!
I’m really getting into lettering these days!
This is the last tattoo I did at the convention. It was on a girl named Nica, which means victory…hence the victory tattoo!
